This restaurant is not for gastro eaters this is for travellers on a budget. The portions are big and the owner is hilarious, we loved the experience more than the food but for eight of us at 12 euros a head for a four course meal inc wine it was a winner. Not sure how he makes a profit!! Can... More

Once again I say this is the best value restaurant around, Just read the reviews, Manola is an amusing owner. Only go with an empty stomach as the free entree is huge ,even before you start your 3c meal + half a bottle of wine.

This restaurant is value for money, 3 courses with wine, meals are very big, there is a wide range to choose from, the prawns in garlic are the best in the world. Manola the owner is so friendly, I would recommend anyone to this restaurant.

Another visit to Restaurant Paraiso and again could find no fault other than there's too much food and how does he manage to serve this including free drinks! 4 of us ate and no-one was disappointed. The soup is home-made, the prawn pil pil is perhaps not the quality of a couple of years ago but still very tasty. 2... More

When we first vivited this place with a friend who lives in Benalmadena we had a really good experience and the food was good with a great choice. However when we went with friends Manolo did not look after us very well at all and even though the set menu comes with wine he charged us for the two bottles... More

We were taken there by friends, the menu is great value, whilst you are ordering big plates of cheese, pate, salad ans bread and butter arrive. The set menu is great value, lots of choice and the inclusive wine, not the best, but not the worst, keeps on arriving too. Manolo is a lovely, but very eccentric waiter/owner and will... More

Went with four couples and found it amazing value with three courses, wine and sangria all for 10.50 Euros per person. The owner was really good fun and the atmosphere was great. The courses do come thick and fast but that is understandable as they need to reuse tables to make any money. The food was of a reasonable standard... More

Definitely not fine dining but for €10.50 for three courses plus salad plus rolls, pate, cheese and wine you can't really go wrong. Plenty of choice on the menu, we had prawns pil pil and Mexican eggs to start, then spaghetti carbonara, pork fillet with apple sauce and pork fillet with pepper sauce, creme caramel and profiter roles for dessert....
